Baby Audio has introduced the release of a free plugin that introduces pitch fluctuations to make your tracks feel more organic and natural.

Inspired by acoustic instruments, the Pitch Drift effect ranges from subtle instabilities that make your instruments sound less sterile to intense pitch drifting that will make your tracks clearly out of tune.

The plugin is powered by the Drift algorithm in Baby Audio’s Super VHS lofi plugin with 6 colorful effects to bring an authentic 1980s retro vibe to your tracks.

One of the appeals of acoustic instruments is that they are never 100% in tune 100% of the time. These subtle pitch instabilities compound when you bring multiple instruments together in a mix – making the music sound richer and more dynamic.

However, in the computer-era this concept is often lost. Pitch Drift makes it fast and easy to break the spell of digital pitch perfection and get your tracks to vibrate a little more. It generally works best at subtle levels on sustained tonal instruments or entire mix busses.

As a rule of thumb, the less sustained your source is, the faster you want the speed parameter to be set.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats for Windows and Mac, Pitch Drift joins the Magic Dice lush delay/reverb/modulation effect, Magic Switch Juno-inspired chorus and Baby Comeback delay plugin, which are all free to by signing up to the mailing list at Baby Audio’s freebies page.

All of Baby Audio’s paid for plugins and bundles are available at a 10% discount with promo code REKKERD at the checkout.
